Summary: Winds of change are coming to the Island.
McGarrett stood on the balcony.
He felt something off in the breeze that rippled through his hair. He’d been here too long to ignore the wind when it told him something was wrong.
The new Governor was looking very carefully at budgets. McGarrett knew his people were the best and he wasn’t going to give up any of them or take that “early retirement” the mealy-mouthed Lieutenant Governor kept dangling under his nose.
Steve McGarrett had no intention of standing down while a single criminal walked the sands of Waikiki
This was his town and he’d take care of it.
